NP241 short shaft kit going in!!! Pics inside...

It's finally getting done [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] I've been waiting for ever to get the time to do this and it's actually been really smooth so far. Now I'm jinxed [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] The case was relatively easy to get apart and the kit seems really simple to install. It should shorten the NP241 t-case by about 5-6 inches and I had them make me an adapter for the kit so that it would allow the Toy CV shaft to bolt up to it. BTW, I picked this kit up from High Angle Driveline: Jessy, you are the man!!! This adapter is trick! Very impressed and not too expensive. I may even have them make me an adapter for the front output so that it would replace the stock yoke now and allow for a front Toy CV shaft. We'll see...
Anyway, here are the pics....

This is the NP241 case stripped apart:


Here is the short shaft kit waiting to be installed; notice the Toy CV driveshaft adapter :


Here is a comparison between the stock output shaft and the shorter one:


Cheers,
Steve

What's the benifit of going with this case?

Do you have a larger engine with an auto transmission?

Re: NP241 short shaft kit going in!!! Pics inside...

Ya, I'm running a CPI 4.3L with a NV3500 manual tranny. I basically picked this case because (1) it was GM, and (2) it would work. And better gearing can be had in the future. They're pretty much bulletproof but are big and pretty heavy. And not to mention, it just fits. In fact, it's so close to the frame rail that it almost touches.

Cheers,
Steve

A 241!!!!! HOLY CRAP! Those are in the dodges I work on behind V-10's and Diesels. I should say it will be bulletproof behind a 4.3L. Sounds sweet!! [img]images/graemlins/RockOn.gif[/img]

Re: NP241 short shaft kit going in!!! Pics inside...

I know [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] These cases came behind the V8 trucks from GM. Some had the electronic Borg-Warner's and some still had the NP205. The Dodge unit is the same save for the input spline counts and such. And I think Dodge also had a HD version. It wasn't necessary to use this case but it doesn't need an adapter to bolt up and has a VSS so it will save me some $$$ in the long run. It's also shift on the fly and has a 2.7 low which is a good starting point.

Cheers,
Steve

I can't wait to see it all complete and running. Should be a very capable rig. Keep us posted.

Re: NP241 short shaft kit going in!!! Pics inside.

You can't wait?! LOL I've been pulling my hair out trying to get this thing up and running. It's been slow but it was all a matter of time and getting the energy to work on it after work. Which, hasn't happened much. I should have the case put back together by this weekend and I'll have a side by side with the stock case. I have a spare one for parts [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

I'll keep everyone posted...

Cheers,
Steve
